Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: The International boasts some electric action sequences and picturesque locales, but is undone by its preposterous plot.

Common Sense Says
Gritty '70s-style thriller is cynical, grim, and violent.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this thriller about financial corruption probably won't be on most teens' must-see list. Just as well: Not only is it full of wrenching action sequences and grimly realistic (and shocking) violence, but it also has a deeply cynical, hard-to-stomach attitude about the possibilities of finding justice in a wicked world and the interplay between high finance and street-level warfare. There's also some drinking and smoking and strong language (including "f--k") -- but virtually no sexual content.
